I needed some better lighting for my videos. So I figured I would take the opportunity to make my own. The goal is to have two panels one on either side of the camera so that the lighting is more even and I have more options for filming and cool lighting effects.

I think this is to just be the first part of this project, but as Zack Freedman once said “if it works its finished,” or something like that, so I figured I would share it with all of you. Right now, the panels are controlled over WiFi. I have 4 preset colors, feel free to add, modify, or expand on this project.

Let me know if you have questions or any suggestions moving forward.
